Why do I make Documentaries?
Easy, there are many very interesting stories about the Mafia/Mob that should be told many of them from the S.E. Wisconsin, North East Illinois area.
One of the major players in this is of course Frank Balistrieri even with “The Outfit” having control over what was going on in Milwaukee (and if there is a “Mafia” in Milwaukee its run out of Chicago.) Frank B was far more powerful helping IMHO the Outfit/Kansas City more into the Casinos via the Teamsters pension fund loans.
He deserves more then a few paragraphs in books or stories posted on line. The least I can do is make a few documentaries on him.
I hope I can count on you in to help make this happen.
What motivated me to write this post was I picked up the book The Dark Heat of Hollywood by Douglas Thompson, from my local library and well, in a few works it sucks, from repeating what I see as BS stories to as I read some of the pages almost taking lines by lines from other books, it is what it is and perhaps I should write books right ? Funny I know better I am a poor writer but I can put together a team of Film Makers.
We need more truthful work done on what I see at least a part of major American history.
